Jacob

I am a fully qualified secondary mathematics teacher and a friendly, compassionate tutor with a passion for science and mathematics. I enjoy helping students increase their confidence in the subject, using a variety of teaching strategies.

I have tutored for a number of years (in mathematics and science) and am currently teaching in a secondary school.

Tutoring Experience

I have a wealth of school experience and am equipped with a variety of engaging, teaching strategies, to bring mathematics to real life. I focus on depth of understanding and developing students problem solving skills, this not only makes the maths fun but means students can apply their knowledge to any exam question!

Qualifications Degree: Medical Science (Hons)
Obtaining a science degree has allowed me to see the direct application of mathematics to other fields. Seeing the wide applications of the subject first hand, is why I am so passionate about the subject.

Tutoring Approach

Maths is everywhere, I like to prove this to students by giving them questions in a real life context. I also teach students to be resilient and work through questions logically, developing their problem solving skills. This is a new skill being brought into the revised national curriculum. Therefore will set students up for success in their exams.

I also focus on developing exam technique, helping students to gain all the marks they deserve.
